Sholing 0-0 Frome Town

Boatmen drew their first league game of the season and will be disappointed not to have won it. The fact it was against the league leaders, says a lot for the quality of the performance, that was strong & energetic throughout, but just lacked a killer final ball or a bit of luck in the box to reward Sholing for their attacking intent. Boatmen had lots of half chances and limited Frome to just the one effort on target, making it 4 clean sheets in a row in the League - Match Report

Sholing 1-2 Bashley

A jaded looking Sholing went out of the Soton Senior Cup. Bashley got a freak opening goal and then scored a well created and taken second and were on top for most of the first half. Boatmen were off target all night, until the 96th min when Dan Mason glanced in a header, but it was too little too late - Match Report


Sholing 1-0 Willand Rovers

TJ Cuthbertson popped up with a 92nd minute winner as Sholing made it 6 wins and 4 clean sheets in a row.  After a forgettable first half, the Boatmen created much more as the game went on, with Green & Wort missing great chances.  Sholing should have had a goal when Hoole's inswinging corner went well over the line before being hacked away, but with the game looking like it was heading to our first draw of the season, there was late drama.  A nice give and go saw TJ burst into the box and slot the ball past the keeper to spark wild celebrations.  The victory moves Sholing above Willand into 11th and closes the gap on the top 10 - Match Report & Photos



Sholing 6-0 Horndean

A young Boatmen side put in a terrific performance to dominate the entire game and score some quality goals. Brad Targett scored a hat-trick and Josh Carey a brace, with Harry Edmondson rounding off the scoring.  Dave Diaper, in charge for the 1100th time, gave debuts to 5 players and most of the others only had a handful of first team appearances between them, helped by the experienced (but still young) heads of Roundell, Royl & Targett.  Sholing are at home to Bemerton Heath Harlequins in the next round of the Russell Cotes Cup - Match Report & Interviews


Sholing 1-0 Bristol Manor Farm

James Lauder's sensational strike was the only goal in a hard fought win for the Boatmen. After an even high tempo start, Sholing went close when a Bristol defender headed over his keeper and off the post, but on 37 mins, the game was lit up when James Lauder won the ball, made space and let fly from 25 yards with the ball screaming into the net.  The visitors hit the post from a freekick a minute later and were to have the upper hand in the second half, again hitting the woodwork and being denied by Gosney and some strong defending.  Dan Mason almost scored with a backheel late on, but we emerge with our 4th win in a row, which lifts us up to 12th place - Match Report


Winchester City 0-1 Sholing

Boatmen came away from 4th place Winchester with a deserved win thanks to a lot of hard work and Jake Hoole's first half goal.  The game marked Byron Mason's 600th appearance for the club and the Captain put in another excellent performance in the heart of defence.  On a pitch that cut up badly and in a strong wind, it was an unsurprisingly scrappy start, but on 33 mins, Sholing scored when Jake Hoole drilled in a low shot from just inside the box.  Brad Targett was unlucky straight after the restart as his angled effort beat the keeper and appeared to be heading in until an unkind bounce took the ball onto the post.  Rest of the game, Sholing limited Winch to just one chance, that Gosney saved & after an energy sapping week of games (today was our 40th match of the season), Boatmen showed great desire & application to get the win and a clean sheet also - Match Report & Videos
